Hippity Hop

. . .down the Bunny Trail!

Happy Easter!

Here's my Easter quilt. The rabbit was a pattern in a Piecemaker's calendar many years ago. I had to add baskets and eggs, because that's what the rabbit is all about. This was just about the first applique project I did (and finished!)

Here's a closeup of the bunny. I put in the dark purple egg for some contrast, and also had a dark purple basket, but I didn't think it worked real well. But I had already cut out the fabric behind the egg, so I couldn't take it off. I had to compromise with the embroidery on the egg to tone it down some. I did change the basket. I think the egg still sticks out. Oh well. Lesson learned! I always seem to be learning lessons with my quilting. *sigh*

Here's Dunkel, "helping" me take the picture. Maybe he's inspecting my stitches! Those of you who have cats and quilts have probably noticed that, somehow, cats always find the quilts that are available to be rested upon. They seem to have a 6th sense about it.
I won't be blogging for about 10 days. I'm hopping down the trail to California for a quilting retreat with my friends!
Happy Spring!
